Celebrity Cruises has today ordered a pair of new, 117,000 ton cruise ships from the STX yard in France.
Known as ‘Project Edge’, the two sisters will be some 984 feet long each, and a passenger capacity of 2,900.
The first of the duo is scheduled for delivery in the autumn of 2018, with the second ship expected in early 2020.
The two new ships will build on the ‘Modern Luxury’ theme enshrined in the Solstice class quintet, and retro-fitted to the quartet of earlier, Millennium class vessels. It is understood that there will be a conscious effort to make the new sisters particularly environmentally friendly.
Other details are yet to be fleshed out at this time.
As ever, stay tuned.
